Seafood, steak and pork are mouthwatering!! . Simply the best restaurant in Lagos with a warm welcome for customers and fabulous with children with my nephew... More

As already stated in a previous review I have been visiting this area of the algarve for nearly 30 years. Until now I had never tried this restaurant. This is one to add to the list as a must visit for every time I am over here. The service here is fantastic without being overly attentive. The waiter and lady... More

Very nice large family style restaurant. It seems popular with the locals. The pork was delicious and the sea bass was very fresh and also delicious. This was a little off the beaten path but close to the Aqualuz Hotel.

Tucked away near the big "Intermarche" supermarket, this is a real culinary find. Excellent traditional Portuguese fare with an Angolan twist - Carlos is a retournado & his wife, Christina is Ukrainian. The food is always fresh, the portions are generous, the service is attentive but not oppressive, and the value quite remarkable. A fine place to sample good Portuguese... More

We spent 2 weeks holiday in Puerto Mos, Lagos last month. We went to the big Intermarche supermarket and spied the Carlos Restaurant sign advertising chargrilled chicken and steaks across the road. As big carnivores, we wasted no time in sampling the Brazilian style picanha steak with chips, rice and beans. It was seriously delicious and a very generous portion.... More

Just happened upon this place for lunch today. We were very impressed not only with the food but also the service. Carlos stopped by the table to introduce himself and also then served our table. Very attentive service without being invasive. Very nice presentation of food and excellent flavor. Very generous portions, even with the mixed salad and the tuna... More

The food is essentially traditional Portuguese with an African twist. Portions are generous and prices very reasonable. Chicken piri-piri and other charcoal grilled dishes are specialities along with monk fish rice, moamba (an Angolan chicken... More

Formerly Restaurante Alcunhas, new owner Carlos has recently taken over this popular Restaurante/Grill with his lovely wife. The service is exemplary, cleanliness cannot be faulted, and the prices very reasonable. The dishes are just delicious. Fish is a speciality. There is an extensive wine list and very drinkable house wine. There is a dish of the day and Sundays dish... More
